'Millions of cars' damaged by potholes as crisis deepens

A third of drivers have suffered damage to their vehicles from potholes over the last two years, a survey suggests.
A third also rated the condition of their local roads as poor, very poor or "terrible", according to the AA/Populus survey of nearly 23,000 drivers.
Meanwhile, the Asphalt Industry Alliance says councils may need as much as £10.5bn to bring the country's "crumbling roads" into good condition.
